About Us

Our history

Store owner and passionate cyclist, Michael "Wooly" Kamahl has steered the store to success over the past 44 years and has greatly contributed to the profile of cyclists in Sydney through vigorous community involvement.

Striking out at the age of 16, he began his lifelong love of bicycles as a mechanic that included a stint servicing bikes out of his ute on the UNSW campus. In 1979 he put it all on the line and opened a retail space in the current location, trading $7 on his first day – off to a flying start!

Wooly has seen it all from the introduction of aluminium, to the death of friction shifters, the start of the carbon wave and the ‘zzzt’ of electronic shifting. Many of the custom built steel framed bikes hand brazed on the premises using specially imported Reynolds tubing are still in circulation today!

Wooly prides himself and his store on independence and a love of doing things well.

Our future

At Woolys Wheels we believe our customers are looking for more than just the cheapest price


From humble beginnings in 1979, Woolys Wheels has continually strived to offer cyclists superior service, range and advice. Our new two level showroom and workshop facilities embodies all that we have learnt along the journey to hopefully becoming your favourite bicycle retailer!


Need advice before you buy? Our retail staff and workshop technicians are the best in the business and happy to share their expertise to assist you in making the best product choices whether it’s a new bike, accessory or repair.


The power of internet retailing has meant many bike shops can no longer afford to carry large ranges of bikes and accessories, so if you’re tired of just being able to “just look and not touch” come in and be pleasantly surprised by our huge range of new bikes, clothing and accessories.


We appreciate a lot of our customers rely on their bikes for day-to-day transport, so when a maintenance issue arises speedy attention is imperative! Our state-of-the art workshop feature 4 workshop bays and expert service technicians that pride themselves on workmanship, AND timeliness to ensure you get back on your bike sooner.
